We arrived when there was leftover snow on the ground from previous snowstorms. It was plowed very nice in there, and we were able to get into our spot easily. Once the snow melted, the ground was loaded with dog poop and cigarette butts from other campers. We cleaned up close to 3 packs of butts just in front of our door. It is very quiet here, and you can hear waves from the ocean, and fog horns when its foggy. Very relaxing sound. There is only 1 washer, 1 dryer, and they are right at the entrance to both the shower rooms. If anyone is doing laundry its a tight squeeze, but passable to get into either shower room. Shower rooms are kept very clean. The dryer took 1 1/2 hours to dry one load. There is no internet--not even up at the building. They rent a 2G Verizon wifi card for $20. There isn't any exercise room as stated on the website. Most of the campground is very clean, and the people in the office are friendly. Along the shore that doesn't have a beach, is loaded with sand spurs. Not recommended to walk dogs there!!!! Overall the campground is nice. A few of the sites do flood when it rains, and it will be ankle deep with water when it does. Fortunately, the only water we had to wade through was on the side where our levers are for the tanks. I think they need to enforce picking up after dogs. When we went down to the beach to walk, the entrance to that had a large pile of dog mess left there by one of the office workers dogs. (A few of us watched it go there). The picnic areas are full of it too. They need to enforce people cleaning up after their dogs, which is one thing that not only annoys me, but others. Overall, the campground is nice, mostly clean other than a couple of these gripes, and very quiet. Off season rates are reasonable, and electric is included with the price. I don't know what summer prices are. All the sites are level. We camped at The Colonies RV & Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Fort Monroe has endless things to do without having to go far.

We stayed here while enjoying some quality time with our grandson. Great beach with good salt water fishing. Lovely owners with a well stocked general store. This was a military campground left over when Ft. Monroe was an active base. Not but five 50 amp sites. I would highly recommend. We camped at The Colonies RV & Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Owners worked with us and were very nice. Roads are a little tight, but we were ok in a 36' 5th wheel. Only one washer and one dryer. Only one bathroom/shower for women and one for men. Nearby beach club offers a pool (additional cost) but also loud music at night...especially on the weekends. Beach is close by as well as playgrounds. We enjoyed visiting the nearby fort as well. Overall, we would return to this park if in the area. We camped at The Colonies RV & Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful place. Extremely quiet. For military families-either retired or active duty. Thirteen full hook up sites and six overflow sites with water/electric. Swimming pool is at the Community Center just up from the campground. Lots of history, good fishing and right off the ocean with private beaches. You can watch all the ships go in and out of the Norfolk Naval Base. We camped at The Colonies RV & Travel Park in a Tent Trailer.
